Freshman Class President Interview
2019-2020 Freshman Class President
Interview by Asia Winters
As a new school year begins, a new class president is elected. Landon James is the newly elected freshman class president, and here is what he has to say on the topic.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have one brother and I have straight A’s. I plan to maintain my 4.0 average during all my years here at Rossview.
Why did you run for class president?
I ran for class president because I want this to be the best freshman class at Rossview yet!
What other experience do you have in leadership? Are you involved in anything else at RHS?
I run track and I was involved in the little student government in elementary school.
What are the duties and responsibilities of your positions?
I conduct meetings, remind the other members of the student government of said meetings, work out fundraiser sales, and run the student government without being a dictator.
What goals do you have for this year?
I am planning on making everyone happy and having no drama. I am also planning on some great fundraisers and helping every student feel proud to be at Rossview.
How do you plan on involving the student body in your decisions? How about the rest of the student council?
I want to make better relationships with the freshmen class at Rossview, and from there I can be open to any and all ideas from my peers. I hope to be a collective voice for my class.
How will you use your position to make this school a better place?
I plan to use my position to reach out to students, use their ideas, and make this school into a better and more positive environment.
Any fundraiser ideas?
A movie night and Zaxby’s night are currently in the works.
What makes you different from other class presidents? What makes you unique?
I am different than previous class presidents, because of my ambition and aspiration for making this school a better place that everyone can be proud to be a part of.

What is more “high school” than going to watch the game with some friends, donning all the Rossview attire you can, and painting yourself in handprints on your legs, and dots over your eyes? Homecoming is one of the most well-known and well-done traditions pertaining to high school. It’s a night shared by millions of other high schools, essentially a right of passage for a young teenager.
If the dance is not for you, attend the homecoming game! This year Rossview will play against Dickson County; a game I’m sure you won’t want to miss.
So, attend our school homecoming this year! Get out and get moving! Have fun in school for a change, instead of always dreading that test you have next period or constantly glancing at the clock.
Homecoming game: 27 September @ 7PM
Homecoming Dance: 28 September @ 7PM
Limited tickets will be sold at lunches leading up to it, so keep your eyes and ears out for those announcements!
